Adam Levine responds to critics after Maroon 5's Super Bowl performance

Of all the reasons to criticize Maroon 5's half-time performance at the Super Bowl on Sunday - lackluster, lifeless, and unmemorable are all words that come to mind - the band is taking the most heat for not injecting social justice into the mix.

During the Super Bowl Halftime show from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Levine removed his shirt while playing the guitar. And, well, Twitter was not here for it, with many users bashing the outfit decision. Adam Levine just went full on shirtless.

Adam Levine with the only celebration dance so far tonight. "Adam Levine's necklace or tank top?" Yikes. Not exactly the comments Levine likely expected to hear regarding his on-stage wardrobe. On Facebook, fans compared the shirt to various pieces of geometric-patterned home accents - specifically, pillows.

Following the halftime show in Atlanta, which was widely panned by critics and viewers alike, the Twitterverse took to their gadgets to scrutinize the Maroon 5 frontman's performance and nipples.

"Super Bowl halftime nipple rules feel inconsistent", sports personality Katie Nolan tweeted.

Former The Talk co-host Aisha Tyler tweeted, "Why is it okay to see Adam [Levine's] boobs and not Janet Jackson's? Asking for a friend".

Getting a major artist to perform in the halftime show was an arduous task for the NFL, due to the fact that multiple musicians vowed to boycott the show in solidarity with national anthem protester Colin Kaepernick. As noted by NBC News, Kaepernick has accused the NFL of having "colluded to keep him out of the league". "I have the same look.in a chair!" they said. "No one put more thought and love into this than I did".

Prinsloo capped things off with a sweet photo of a shirtless Levine embracing his wife, presumably at the end of the show, writing, "No words can describe all of this...."

Pre ab-reveal, we couldn't take our eyes off the elderly couple having the time of their lives fangirling over Adam Levine during one of the biggest musical performances of the year. The day after the big game, the Maroon 5 singer posted a note on Instagram that thanked friend and foe alike for the chance to shine: "We thank the universe for this historic opportunity to play on the world's biggest stage".
